A previously unseen sketch by MC Escher has gone on public display in its new home, The Escher Museum, The Hague, for the first time.

The sketch depicts the town of Montecelio and was completed by the Dutch surrealist in the March of 1924 when he was visiting Rome during the preperation for his wedding.

Unusually for Escher the sketch was completed on paper rather than woodblock or a lithograph. 

The sketch was acquired by the museum through Escher's family and will be on display at the museum until November.
